I would have given a zero rating, but it doesn't let me do that. This place was better managed when it was a Holiday Inn. This most recent visit brought us to a closed restaurant, a lame continental breakfast, a manager openly fighting with and berating his maintenance personel and a housekeeping staff that did not visit our room...at all!...

I must say that I was a bit surprised and totally confused by your review. The 1863 Inn dropped the Holiday Inn franchise in 2009. The hotel has the same owners and management. That has not changed. We still provide the same quality of service that we did before we dropped the franchise. We do not have a restaurant. I... More

Staff was friendly and nice, room was clean and comfortable, and the location was in the middle and near a lot of wonderful things. I was a bit concerned about the outside entrances on the rooms in regard to the noise, but since it's located in an area with shops, restaurants and such, everything closes down fairly early and it...

I've been staying at the 1863 since shortly after they changed from their previous name. It has always been a great visit. The employees are some of the friendliest I've run across in any city/town and extremely helpful. Rooms are clean and large. Price is great. Location can't be beat, you can park your car and walk the town. I'm... More

We visited the battlefields of Gettysburg last weekend, and wanted a place where we could leave the car and explore by foot. The 1863 Inn is perfectly situated in town, close to bars and restaurants for meals, and adjacent to Cemetery Hill. It isn't a fancy hotel, but it was clean and comfortable and has all the basics. Breakfast was... More

We loved our stay here! Location can not be beat, beds are very comfy, bathrooms are spotless and breakfast was very nice. The staff was super friendly and made great suggestions on places to eat and things to see. We've already booked a return visit and joined the preferred "club".

We stayed here one night before our stay at the Farnsworth House Inn. it was a last minute deal and we got a room for $100.00. It was clean, convenient and the staff was extremely friendly. I would definitely stay here again, and not just in a pinch.
